My boyfriend really liked this gift. He wanted to shave the stubble in between his weekly professional shave without ruining his skin. He is african american and tens to get bumps so far he says the shaver is doing great and no bumps.
I use it to shave both my head and face. Gives a good close shave without irritation. As an African American male "razor bumps," are always a concern. However i have not had any problems since using the proglide.
I had been thinking of trying a new razor for a while, even considering an electric razor. I usually shave once a week, and have for years. I got the razor through a trial program through Gillette. I thought this would be a good time to try a different product, as I was changing my shaving routine to something a little more frequent than before... The razor was designed for sensitive skin, which is right up my alley. Being African-American, I have always worried about skin burns and razor bumps. The first week in I shaved three times, being every other day with NO problems whatsoever ! I use a shaving cream, and other than this razor being different than what I use, there was NO change in my routine. The shave is close, and comfortable. I didn't have to think about the blades, just shaving. I also wear a goatee, and the single blade in the rear of the razor gave me a nice line on each side. Best part of a good shave is my girl of 8 years complimenting me on it the next day after the first use of the PROGLIDE. I have known the Proglide was out there, just stuck in my grooming habits as most people are. Over the holiday weekend I bought ANOTHER Proglide with the multi-razor pack. VERY happy with this razor. Thank you Gilette !
